Manicures with Essie!

We teamed up with Essie Canada to check out what they were doing backstage during Toronto Fashion Week... we were totally blown away! The nails were all inspired by runway looks (our fav!) We have an obsession with nail art and are always on the lookout for the coolest nails around! So when Essie asked us if they could give us manicure's backstage all during the week, how could we say no? We love Rita Remark who is Essie's lead nail artist. She is so much fun! We met her on our way to New York Fashion Week (waiting for the airplane) because she was heading down to do all the model's nails for top runway shows in NY! We totally hit it off and here are the gorgeous manicures we got!

Manicure one is blue tie dye smudge for (Laura Siegel's runway show) Essie Polish used: Midnight Cami, Lapiz of Luxury, Blanc, Top Coat (No chips ahead)

CALLA Backstage- SPRING 2014 Collection

CALLA kicked off Toronto Fashion week by showing at The Show's with her California Girl Chic Collection for Spring 2014. We were backstage getting a sneak peek of all the models having fun and getting ready for her show. Calla is our awesome long time friend and we are HUGE fans of hers! Even our parents joined us at the show. Her collection was filled with gorgeous tweeds, 80's neon bathing suits with big zippers and girly dresses. We are Calla junkies!
